Herniated Disc Treatment

Everyone experiences back pain at some point in their lives. Sciatica and herniated disks are common causes of back pain and discomfort. While sciatica is the result of damage or impingement to the sciatic nerve, herniated disks often occur after physical trauma. Seeking treatment as soon as possible is the best way to prevent long-term, chronic pain. Treating the cause of the injury is the best way to relieve the symptoms and hasten the healing process. At Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness, we can create a treatment plan that will relieve your pain.


What Is a Herniated Disc?

The gelatinous discs that are located between each of the vertebrae in your spine absorb the shock and pressure that is placed on the body as you walk, run, and move. Injuries and inflammation can cause the disc to rupture, allowing the internal material of the disc to push out. As more of the disc protrudes outside of its normal space, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. The result is numbness, tingling, chronic pain, and discomfort.

Common Causes of Herniated Discs

Herniated discs can be caused by car accidents, slip and fall accidents, sports injuries, or improper lifting techniques. If these injuries are treated immediately, they may be able to heal naturally without producing excess scar tissue. Waiting too long to see your chiropractor can result in long-term chronic pain that can adversely affect your quality of life. Any time back pain starts to flare up, seek chiropractic care immediately.

Chiropractic Treatment Options

Chiropractic care includes many treatment options that are safe and effective. These techniques can be used together to create a well-rounded treatment plan that can be used throughout your healing and recovery. Chiropractic adjustments, corrective exercises, physical therapy, and spinal decompression are all possible options that support the healing process. With the right combination of treatment options, healing will go much faster.
